Regarding your proposed future headline - Only if you're content calling Russians 'alien invaders'.

Here's a headline we'll run this century, mark our words: Alien invaders' AI found on Mars searching for signs of life
Facebook accused of trying to bypass GDPR, slurp domain owners' personal Whois info via an obscure process
The Edinburgh Fringe festival isn't happening this year, but that won't stop a digital sign doing its own comedy routine
The whole computer manufacturing world is insane as are most of its buyers.
The keyboards are ALL tilted WRONG. The space bar side should be higher than the function keys at the top of the keyboard.
The hands should be curved forward, not back!
I'm amazed that it's STILL this way after decades. Sadly amazing.
Microsoft has apparently lost its sanity with this update. Abandon ship!!
I'm hating what the update has done to my PC.
I'm turning off the 'auto update' option.
I wonder how many weeks it will be before my desktop is back to normal.
This incident makes me want to begin research on a non Microsoft operating system that I can replace the Microsoft OS with.
Operating Systems are supposed to GET BETTER, not worse! What is going on??
This is by far the worse updating of OS I've every experienced.
SHAME on Microsoft!! Not cool at all!!
Rupert Murdoch should be 6 feet under or at least in prison for the rest of his poisonous life!!
This message is addressed to The People of The United States of America -
In case you've lived under a rock for the last 2 generations, Rupert Murdoch and his evil minions has poisoned the United States of America with divisive lies that millions have taken as truth due to regular repetition of the lies. "It must be true, it's on TV!"
The FIFTY BILLION DOLLARS Murdoch is getting from this sale should go directly into the coffers of the United States of America for the benefit of its citizens, nowhere else!
Happy with traitor Trump as President? Thank Murdoch, his twisted lieutenant, Roger Ailes, and their many immoral spokespeople paid to squirt lies daily to The People of America with a smile.
As long as we're hypothetically imprisoning professional liars, poisonous propagandists, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Alex Jones and many others should also be residing in penitentiaries.
It should be against the law to repeatedly lie to The People because there are many among us who believe that verbal crap.
Do you like the way America is now? Like the tension between the red and blue states?
Like the way the religious are crippling public schools with religion?
Like all the haters that think they're in the right in limiting the basic freedoms of other Americans?
If you do, then you've been fooled and poisoned too. Way to go.
I will celebrate on the day of Rupert Murdoch's demise.
Put me in a room with him, give me a loaded pistol, and I'll be happy to spend the rest of my life in a prison for bringing about his end. I'll plead righteous insanity.
Murdoch has ruined millions of lives. He's no better than Hitler, Pol Pot, etc.
While I'm jabbering, DON'T elect any more lawyers to political positions!
Lawyers are programmed in school to WIN no matter who or what gets hurt.
You DON'T want that kind of politician making the laws or voting on critical issues!
NO MORE LAWYERS IN POLITICS! Got me??
REPEAL THE GOD DAMNED 'CITIZENS UNITED' law and ruling that has put the greedy corporations in the driver's seat of our governments (federal, state and local) if you want a nation by, for, and of The People again!
Super Cali goes ballistic, small-cell law is bogus. School IT outsourcing is also... quite atrocious
Re: Will not gain acceptance
Really? You wonder why? Are you not aware of the vast number of greedy corporations that control the American governments (federal, state and local)?
The 'citizens united' law gave the corporations the ability to own the majority of politicians in the USA.
Evidently, the corporations have decided that, right now, it's more profitable for them to have Americans crawl across the territory, consuming gasoline, cars and tires.
In reality, faster trains are being planned and designed for the US right now.
Ever heard of Elon Musk? He has this plan for super high speed trains traveling in near vacuum.
It's being implemented both in the USA and elsewhere.
I recommend reading more reports online.

Re: 400 Gb on your little fingernail....
Oh boy, a hateful aging ageist. That hateful crap is supposed to be mouthed by the stupid young folks, not the seasoned. Shame on you. I'd say it's time for you to grow up, but you've clearly missed the boat. Way to spread a blind blanket of hate. Just what we need.
I don't think rules or limits are bad things. They keep us safer than we would be without them.
You want rules that keep the cops out of your business. You want traffic lights to regulate traffic.
The Constitution is a bunch of rules/limits.
You wouldn't like a completely lawless nation, because there would be much unnecessary suffering and death.
We agree that public opinion is not always right, but it is, more often than not.
We agree, I think, that each issue should be dealt with on a case by case basis.
The Majority is right more often than it is wrong.
Issues should always be put to public debate.
Not talking about issues is part of why we're in the mess we're now in.
The ignorants need to hear from the more aware folks.
Ignorance leaves the door open for fear, and from fear to hate.
I wonder how long it took the guy to figure out that calls for genocide is a no no. Days? Hours?
It's Russian hackers, FBI and Wikileaks wot won it – Hillary Clinton on her devastating election loss
It's sadly telling how out of touch the honorable Hillary Rodham Clinton is, that she thinks she needs to clue us in on what got in the way of her campaign. Sheesh.
I voted for her, because the idea of Trump in the white house was unthinkable.
I wanted Bernie Sanders, and I'm STILL angry about the DNC's part in screwing him over.
I don't like the way you write, Simon Sharwood.
You write coldly, without thought of what your readers might want to know on the subject.
You told us Firefox is number TWO, but didn't bother to tell us who's number ONE. Bad move.
You apparently threw this article together. Phooey.
Next time, THINK about your readers! Sheesh.
Re: One good thing
You know that for sure, huh, sparky? Next question is - How to you know what you claim to know?
You'd have to be an employed member of government security to know whether or not drones in the USA have ever been used against a plane, and I don't think you have such clearance. Wake up. Grow up.
The writer of this article requires a refresher course in basic Journalism.
Nowhere in the article does it saw WHERE this took place.
Yes, he was a 'Londoner', and his living location is given, but it's still not clear where this happened.
This could have taken place in the USA.
Again, the article doesn't tell us where this arrest took place. Back to school.

Re: Why so much hate from the writer?
I'm thinking the ire is from disappointment that Lessig stepped out when he did.
I know I'm not happy he made this decision. You never know...Hillary might blow away or something.
She certainly doesn't have the 'fire in the belly' we require of our next President.
Writer Worstall needs to rethink his future in journalism. Perhaps song-writing, or real estate would be a better fit.
"It seems that researchers have shown that we use a certain part of our brain when thinking about valuations of things which we normally think about the valuations of; things that we value and purchase in the normal course of life. "
As supervising editor, I'd have a talk with Worstall to see if he's really serious about journalism.
I don't think he is.
